Time to Assemble

Facial Details:

1-Attach safety eyes (6mm) between rows 8 and 9 from the top. Cut out a small triangle of pink felt for the nose.

2- Whipstitch nose between the two eyes, using two strands of embroidery thread (Starts with 6. Just pull away 2 of them).

3- Mouth details: thread one embroidery needle with full thickness of black embroidery thread (6 strands); thread the other with 2 strands. The needle with 6 strands will be for the mouth, the 2 are used to tack down the larger thread in the shape you want the mouth to be. Come up with your needle at the bottom of the nose (locking in your knotted end inside the head) and go back into the head at the outer edge of the mouth (don’t pull tight). Place needle into head off to the side and grab needle with 2 strands of thread.

4- Take your needle with 2 strands of black thread and come up through the inside of the head locking in your knotted end. You want these “tacking down” stitches to come out on one side of the mouth thread, go up and over it and then back down into the same place the thread came out of the head, locking the mouth thread in place. Mine needed about 3-4 tacking stitches on either side.

5- Repeat on the other side. Tie off ends of both threaded needles inside the head, hiding the knots.

6- Take your yarn needle and darker colored thread (hiding the knot inside the head), create line stitches: 3 on either side of the face and 3 on the top of the head. I made my middle lines slightly longer than the outer ones.

7- Continue crocheting the head closed making sure to stuff before the hole gets to small

8- FO, weave tail through front stitches only, pull tight to close the gap, tie off and weave in end.

9- The head is now complete. Set aside and make remaining pieces before assembling.

Assemble:

10- Get all of your materials together: head, 2 ears, 4 legs, tail, wire, 2 pink felt rounded triangles (for inner ears), 2 strands pink embroidery thread, embroidery needle, and yarn needle.

11- Whipstitch pink felt triangles onto flattened ear pieces, using embroidery thread and needle. Repeat for both ears.

12- Making sure ears are flat, whipstitch ears down to either side of head using yarn needle

13- Using your jewelry wire and a pair of wire cutters, bend one end of wire in on itself, coiling the end around the base. Use the wire cutters clamping section at the front to flatten the loop at the end so the wire fits inside the cat’s tail.

14- Push the wire into the tail, cutting the other end so that it is long enough to create a coil that will be twisted into the back side of the head. Gently twist the wire where you want the tail to go, into the back of the head (towards the bottom).

15- Whipstitch tail to head, using yarn needle.

16- Position arms where you want them, making sure the braided side of the 3 leftover stitches from R13 are facing toward the head (as shown by the arrow below). Using yarn needle, whipstitch legs to body (two in front and two in back, as shown).
